Hello, I want to buy a used bike and make it an Adv bike for a long trip through the Caucasus, the stans and Mongolia to Magadan in 2 years. Until that time, it will be my everyday bike (I'm selling my KTM SMT). I have narrowed down my choice to 2 bikes : Honda Africa Twin (RD04 or RD07) or Kawasaki KLR 650. Both are cheap, easy to maintain and can be easily "adventurized". What are the weak points of these bikes ? Is the KLR really underpowered ? I don't know anything in mechanics and plan to learn it with that bike during the 2 years it will take to prepare my trip. Wich one is the easiest to maintain ? ------- If the KLR is the winner, what do you think of this bike (I will link to the ad if it's not against the sub-forum rules) : KLR 650 for sale for medical reason. In good condition. Maintenance done. New Battery. New front tyre. Fuel filter, oil filter, tank drained, carburetor cleaned, oil ​​changed, oil filter, air filter, and spark plug replaced. The service was made by a professional mechanic. Service manual included. Bike from 2001. Less than 10 000 km. 1750 (2300 US$). Colour : red and black. The bike is not far from where I live (55 km). Is it a bargain ? p.s. Sorry for my awkward english. School was a long time ago and I wasn't listening anyway. p.p.s. The KLR from the ad is in Bastogne. I suppose I will have the check the nuts :d.
